A: All right, Druid, where did you put him?
D: What? Put who, A?
A: You know who I’m talking about.
D: Alas, my ability to read your confounding mind is limited.
A: Well, since this week’s podcast, Episode X, is titled The Case of the Missing Magneto (go on, give it a listen. We can wait)…
D: What does that have to do with me?
A: I heard you, in the back of my head while I had my movie marathon. Every time Michael Fassbender showed up on screen, you whispered, “that one.”
D: And considering how many Fassbender movies you watched …
A: Hey now, that was research. After the first time I heard you, I had to make sure you were right.
D: And the verdict?
A: I think I might need to watch some more of his movies…
D: Sure you do, A. But let’s get back to this vicious accusation you’ve thrown at my head. Why would I steal Magneto – and who’s to say it would be Fassbender’s Magneto I would steal?
A: Actually, both would be splendid as you, but I suppose the accusation may have been wishful thinking?
D: Wishful thinking? You are a devious woman, A.
A: Thank you. You have to admit it might be preferable to trying to convince academy-recognized actors to narrate your story, while only taking a cut of the royalties on every audio book sold.
D: I admit nothing, A. My brilliance should be enough to capture their attention.
A: Uh huh. Right. Let me just work that into the proposal, yeah?
D: Make it so, A.
A: Um, wrong X-Man – and wrong series–
D: These are pointless details, A. In the meantime, everyone ought to run over to Green Embers Recommends for Episode 10 of the Not-So-Shocking News Dialogues.
A: Indeed – thanks for reading everyone!
